London Wasps boss Dai Young says his side's game against Bath on Sunday will be a tough challenge, despite their recent victory over London Welsh.

Young's men go into the game on the back of the away win - their first of the season - but the Welshman says nobody is getting carried away with the current league positions.

The Wasps director of rugby said: "It's obviously pleasing that we're getting together some momentum now but as I have said to the players, you only have to look at the table to see how tight it all is.

"Bath are incredibly difficult to score tries again and are one of the top defensive sides in the league so we know what a challenge they will bring to Adams Park."

"A couple of wins would keep you well in the top half but a couple of losses could put you right back down the table so there's no-one getting carried away here."

Wasps are unbeaten at Adams Park this season ahead of Bath's visit, but with home games still to come against the likes of Gloucester, Northampton and Saracens, there are some big challenges ahead.

"We have an incredibly tough-run in," Young said. "There's no easy game in there and while it would be great to see a number of Wasps players representing England in the next few weeks; if we are going to lose players to international duty, it's going to be quite tough for us to cope with given the size of our squad.

"We have an opportunity this Sunday against Bath to go into the league break in a good position so this really is a big game for us.

"Bath are incredibly difficult to score tries again and are one of the top defensive sides in the league so we know what a challenge they will bring to Adams Park.

"They will be targeting this as a game to help them move up the table as well so we'll be in for a real battle."
